Watch the Trailer to Richard Linklater’s ’80s Throwback, ‘Everybody Wants Some’

By Andrew Leung

Billed as “Dazed and Confused meets the ’80s,” Richard Linklater’s follow up to the widely acclaimed and award-winning Boyhood isn’t so ambitious, but it is familiar territory, which the director has honed through his earlier filmography.

The film centers on a group of college baseball players and their beer-soaked shenanigans, navigating life (i.e., parties filled with girls) sans responsibilities and supervision. They do all kinds of fun things, like: haze freshman baseball players by duct taping them to a fence and then hitting balls at them; stalk girls who say they’re cute; and drink beer from beer bongs made out of plastic baseball bats. Nevermind—it’s just like Boyhood!

The film’s cast includes Glee’s Blake Jenner; Pretty Little Liars’ Ryan Guzman; Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin; 22 Jump Street’s Wyatt Russell; Ringer’s Zoey Deutch; Scream Queens’ Glen Powell; and a slew of newcomers like Will Brittain.

Everybody Wants Some will premiere on April 15th at SXSW 2016. Watch the trailer below:
